Tech Mahindra Ltd. a specialist provider of connected solutions to the connected world and enabling future digital enterprises, today announced that it will execute cutting-edge Budgeting System using SAP’s Public Budget Formulation (PBF) suite for Fulton County Schools. This is the first time SAP’s PBF suite will be deployed for a K12 School District.

The new web based budget planning system will allow the school district to implement a more efficient budget development process by automating the key budget processes and will improve overall user experience. The system will also have the ability to disperse district level allocations to schools and for the schools to be able to adjust allotted budgets. Another key goal of the project is to develop a robust reporting system aimed to help users to build flexible user-friendly budget planning and monitoring reports.

These reports would reflect division, department and program data, allowing the district to analyze information using “What If” scenarios to help them make future decisions. In addition to improving transparency and accountability, the new system will provide a highly integrated planning platform for department, school, capital, grant, and other budget types in a single solution. This allows Fulton County Schools to meet the unique requirements of each budget process while providing an integrated view of the entire budget.

“It is vital for Fulton County Schools to implement this system to develop and monitor our budget very closely as funding has decreased over the years.” says Marvin Dereef, Deputy CFO at Fulton County Schools. “We are very excited to collaborate with Tech Mahindra on this initiative. Tech Mahindra brings extensive experience in implementing similar budgeting systems.”

“We look forward to helping Fulton County Schools implement a state-of-the-art budgeting system that will allow more money to be directed to the classrooms,” says Arvind Malhotra, Head – Strategic Accounts . “Our endeavor is to provide the best support possible for Fulton County to help them achieve their vision, by providing a world-class system with efficiencies across its entire enterprise.”

Tech Mahindra has also partnered with SAP for some critical pieces of the project to leverage their expertise on the SAP PBF product.
